Hot Melt Glue - Chris Dark

Happy Weekend everyone,

and apparently it's going to be a scorcher!!
How fantastic!!
Hope you have something fabulous
planned to make the most of the sunshine!

So, today is the last post for our
hot glue week!  Hope you have enjoyed the 
projects so far.
Today we are very lucky to have the
 lovely Chris Dark with us to show you
how she has used hot glue.

1. Stamp the main flower image in light
 coloured ink onto a 4 x 4 inch piece of
 chipboard covered with white card

2. Using the stamp image as a guide add
 dots of glue the centre circle of the flower

3. Continue adding glue until the circle is
 completely covered. Any stray glue threads
 can be broken off

4. When first layer of glue has cooled and
 set add another layer of glue dots to
 create a dimensional domed layer for the flower

5. Paint around the flower in dark coloured
 acrylic then paint in the petals followed
 by the centre which may need a couple
 of coats for complete coverage

6. Outline the petals in white gel pen using
 the stamp as a guide and then doodle,
 dotted borders and flower centre, a stem
 and leaves.

Wow, I love this, I really want to feel
the flower!!  Ha ha I'm not really weird...
yes I also have to feel papers and smell
them I'm not the only one!

Thank you Chris.

So, if you would like to have a go, this
is what Chris used....

Don't forget to let us know what you think,
we always like to see your comments!

I'll see you tomorrow for our new

  1. A fantastic way to get a rubber stamped image a 3D look!

  2. Wow - this looks really interesting. Not got a hot glue gun "yet" but maybe something to consider.

    What a great idea.
